I have tried to make my dvd drive to "autoplay" when in insert a disk. I set the properties to autoplay when a disk is inserted and play through Windows Media Player. The only way I can get my pc to recognize the drive is to remove it from the system through Device Manager and then the only thing that happens is that the files on the dvd/cd will be shown. When I turn the pc off and then restart, this does not even happen. I have to remove the drive again. It still won't recognize the disk to be autoplayed with Media Player.
Not all CDs will start automatically when inserted. They must be a certain type of disk or contain a file called autorun.inf. Autorun.inf files will only run if you have Administrator rights or are logged in as an Administrator. If you are logged in as a Guest or a User with Limited Access, Autoplay is not available to you. Some programs and configurations may disable Autoplay.
